out of it.”     

 

JVM Tuning - Bespoke Course

“This was an excellent course and was lots of fun to attend. Instructor started with basic intro to
containerization, then explained Kubernetes and the different components (Container
engine, orchestrator, control plane) which all made sense because of the containerization
intro. The parts of the course layered on top of one another to give a good understanding of
Kubernetes.”
